Possible that the thermal fuse is faulty , check from the power plug to this fuse mounted behind. Also there is a circuit breaker for over load protection in the circuit. If not check also the belt to the motor or the motor.
Must open to check these out.

Hi, have you checked the breaker? It would be a 220 breaker meaning a double handle or heavy duty one in your breaker box. look for one that is slightly out of line or has a small red dash showing..flip it back and forth to re-set.

My dryer (about 4yr old) was fine, until tonight when I tried to start a load to dry. It just wont start. Checked the fuse box and it is plugged in properly. Any ideas?


THIS STILL SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM TO ME, CHECK THE BREAKER THIS WILL BE A 220 BREAKER A 40 AMP DOUBLE POLE BREAKER MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 110 VOLTS ON EITHER SIDE GOING TO DRYER. AND THAT YOU HAVE THE 220 TO THE DRYER IT SELF, CHECK THE ELECTRICAL AND LET ME KNOW WE WILL GO FROM THERE IF THIS IS NOT THE PROBLEN YOU CAN GET A CHEAP 0 METER FROM RADIO SHCK TO CHECK THE VOLTAGE THKS LARRY

My dryer just won't start when I press the start


The electrical breaker may not be turned on. Check the homes main electrical breaker panel and ensure the breaker marked Dryer is in the on position. If this does not work, you may need to call someone in to take a look at the dryer.

Dryer will not start, timer sounds like it is running


Possibly a door switch, or starting switch near timer assembly. it could also be a bad breaker, dryers have a double breaker, even if you are getting electricity to part of your dryer 1 bad breaker might not let the rest of the dryer work. With electrical experiance,and elect. tools, have some one test breakers and plug voltage.
